How many weeks? 17. Taylor is about 5 inches long and weighs about 5 oz., she’s about the size of a turnip!
How am I feeling? I’m a little on edge this week since this was the first of my scary weeks with the Green Beans. I had a little scare Tuesday night. I was feeling a constant, dull, menstrual cramping type of pain, so my doctor advised me to go to OB Triage to get checked out. My fear was the cramping was a sign that my cervix was changing. The good news is – my cervix was checked and still looking really good (4.2cm). Taylor was fine, I was fine, all great news! I think I was just a little dehydrated and am going to make a better effort at drinking lots and lots of water.
Doctor’s Appointment? I have a Peri appointment on Friday. Josh will learn how to give me my progesterone shots at this appointment. Once he can do it for me, I am going to start doing them at night so that I can just sleep off the extreme fatigue that the shot gives me.
Weight Gain? 8 pounds.
Baby Preparation? I think my next nursery project will be to start with painting the walls. Nothing more, just thought it’d be fun to get the painting out of the way. I’m taking this nursery prep thing very slowly.
Other prep I did this week, because of our little hospital scare, was pack our hospital bag. I know that sounds crazy to do this early on in a pregnancy, but just in case I ever need to go again (which I don’t plan on) I want to be able to grab our bag and go. The last thing I want to do after I’m told to “go to triage” is run around the house and get our things. Now that I have a packed bag, I’m hoping it won’t be used until my delivery in May.
Likes/Dislikes? My normal appetite is pretty much back, except I’m wanting more carbs and dessert lately. Oh well, what Taylor wants, Taylor gets, right?
